Look at that Minnesota Timberwolves lineup that is featuring two former Sonics in Luke Ridnour and Mickael Gelabale.  Will they have a shot at taking out the Los Angeles Lakers tonight?  Probably not, but it's good to know that both guys are still in the league, starting and doing well.

The Wolves big probably tonight is that their big, lumbering center, Nikola Pekovic is their leading scoring at a blistering 13.0 points per game.  The only real reason to watch the Timberwolves is for Ricky Rubio.  The man can do stuff on the court that not even LeBron James can do.  Rubio passes the ball through a matrix like vortex.  It gets to guys with out being touched even though four defenders should have gotten a hand on it.

Best Matchup - Gelabale vs. World Peace.  MG is going to light up MWP tonight to the tune of 7 points, four rebounds and 1 assist while committing four turnovers.

Prediction: Lakers by double digits, 101-84.
